Which of the following is NOT a physical property?

  1. (a) Liquid nitrogen boils at −196 °C.
  2. (b) Sugar dissolves in water.
  3. (c) Gasoline burns in air.
  4. (d) Gold melts at 1064 °C.
  5. (e) A copper compound is blue.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: Among the given statements, that is not a physical property to be identified.

Concept introduction:

Physical property: Properties which can be observed and measured without changing the composition of a substance are called physical properties. The property differs in terms of their color, appearance, and state. Generally, Physical properties allow us to classify and identify substances.

Physical properties are Color, State of matter, Melting point, Boiling point, Density, Solubility, Electric conductivity, Malleability, Ductility, and Viscosity.

Explanation of Solution

Reason for correct option:

  1. c) Gasoline burns in air: The term ‘burns’ indicate the gasoline is changed into some new substances on burning. The identity of the original substance (gasoline) is lost and no more can be retrieved. Therefore, this is not a physical property.

Hence the correct option is option (c).

Reason for incorrect options:

  • Option a) – Liquid nitrogen boils at 196C .

The term ‘boils’ indicate the liquid nitrogen is changed its state of matter from liquid to gas on boiling without change in composition. Only the state of matter has changed without any new substances generated. Therefore, it is a physical property.

  • Option b) – Sugar dissolves in Water.

The term ‘dissolves’ indicate while adding the solid state of sugar get disappears in water, where change in state occurs as no new substances are formed during the dissolving process
